    PA: Bill Seeks In-State Tuition For Illegals

    Bill Seeks In-State Tuition For Illegals
    January 20, 2011

    A State representative in Philadelphia wants students who are illegal immigrants to pay the same in-state college tuition rates as citizens.

    Rep. Tony Payton Jr., D-Phila., introduced legislation on Monday that is similar to the DREAM Act, a proposed federal law that has been debated in Congress for a decade.

    Payton's proposap would allow undocumented immigrant students to pay in-state tuition at any Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education school, community college or state-related university.

    "Governor [Tom] Corbett wants to cut higher education by 50 percent this year, and under the Republican budgets, it doesn't fare much better," Payton said on Monday. "College is becoming a pipe dream for too many children, not because they aren't talented or willing to work hard, but because they can't afford it. For undocumented children, it's that much harder to attain an education.

    Under Payton's bill, students would have to attend a public or nonpublic secondary school in Pennsylvania for at least three years, pay state income taxes for at least three years prior to enrollment in college, and provide an affidavit they will become a permanent resident.

    There are 11 states that have their own versions of the DREAM Act.

    One comment so far at the source link. Common sense alert!

    So if you're an illegal from Mexico you can go to Penn State cheaper than if you are a US citizen living in Delaware. Only in America!

    WRONG! Mr Payton they can go back to MESSICO and go to college for FREE. They are NOT American, they are NOT citizens of any State... they deserve to pay FOREIGN Student rates.
